During the Nintendo Direct livestream, it was announced that Pikmin 3 will be receiving some cool new DLC on December 2. There is also something special about this DLC. Unlike previously released content, the new DLC will only consist of new stages. This is a departure from the previous formula of releasing new spins on existing stages.

The DLC will include four “Battle Enemies” stages and four “Collect Treasure” stages for a total of 8 new stages altogether. Players will also be able to control Captain Olimar from Pikmin and Pikmin 2 in some of the levels which should be a joy to long time Pikmin fans.
